Yesterday I decided to take a drive in the mountains near where I live. I’m sure to most they are only foothills, but to us they are our mountains. A little back story to my post.
Years ago on a dirt bike ride we visited a abandon cemetery on an old dirt road in the mountains. I can remember the majority of those buried there had died the same year. I can also remember a swimming hole in the stream next to the cemetery. Now fast forward to about 10 years ago I started looking for this cemetery again. Well I’m still looking.
Every now and then I take a drive find another old back road that I haven’t tried yet and see if I can find that cemetery and swimming hole. And sad to say yesterday was not the day. But, I had a great time exploring yet another old dirt road.
As always the South Side of Pittsburgh proved to be interesting. And this past weekend was no exception. A group of photographers from the Westmoreland Photographers Society spent the afternoon walking the street and photographing anything and everything. I found these two motorcycle groups to be interesting.
So today I thought we might jump on the old Schwinn Sting-Ray and take a ride down the street. Or maybe you still are riding that “Big Wheel” up and down the driveway. Oh and don’t forget the lawn darts for a little fun in the yard. #2eightphotography #toys #goodolddays
How about a blast from the past? Recently a couple of my friends and myself took a trip to the Heinz History Center and they had an amazing display of old toys covering many years and I’m betting that many of you will enjoy this trip down memory lane. So over the next few post I’ll show you some of my favorite toys growing up, How many of them will be your old favorites as well. So today we’re going to move a little dirt Tonka style.
Leave a comment on any of the post sharing your favorite memory of the toy.
Sometimes I just enjoy taking a ride through the country side. And you never know what you might come across on one of those rides. On this particular ride deep in the woods on a small road I came across an interesting structure that I’m assuming is a spring of some sort. Maybe you can tell me what it is?
A few days ago I found myself out and about in the mountains. I was driving in the Ohiopyle area and somehow, don’t ask me how, I ended up in Somerset, Pa. On the way home I dropped by the Lower Humbert Bridge. This is a covered bridge built in 1891. Below are three photos from different angles. Hope you enjoy.
Directions to the place. Take the dirt road, which will turn into a cow path across the mountain. When you reach the middle of nowhere go another 3 miles and look for the flags on the fence. You have arrived at your destination. The interesting things you find while out enjoying a ride through the mountains. #sundaydrive #2eightphotgraphy #americanflag
Well it’s been a while since my last post. I had to take a little time to deal with a few personal things and just had to put the 365 project on hold. I’ve got things a little under control and should be able to get back on track now. So for today I’ll just post a quick shot from a drive through a tunnel in Pittsburgh.
